I first reported a score a few years ago when I was only in my early old age. Now this current score is at age 87.
congratulation, I like it .
Finally broke 12000. Feels great.
faster and faster
Thank you for the encouragement Mathias. I am working hard and practicing every day. I was very gratified to see that I actually reached 36 wpm as I could barely make 20 wpm just a few weeks ago.
Love this tool and working hard to increase my speed and accuracy.
hier Michael aus Hamburg, DJ9TA, Platz z.Zt. 725, ich arbeite dran. Vielen Dank für das tolle CW-Übungsprogramm und Deiner damit verbundenen Arbeit! 73 de DJ9TA
4th attempt ever. Been studying CW for 8 weeks now and a couple of day ago started to use this program. Like it a lot because it keeps pushing you to increase your copying speed. Very Nice.
My very first participation
Rufz has inspired me to get out of my comfort zone. I'm enjoying the challenge.
Jeder fängt `mal klein an.
My very first try!!!... hope to improve, I''ll really enjoyed it!
Just getting back to speed -- lesson . . . Don't quit CW for several years, and then come back to it.
This is the most awesome cw trainer ive ever seen.
Getting back into code.
Getting better. Every day a couple of sessions - and not reporting my really bad runs!! HI
A few erbs and a bit of Benson!
thank you for the very FB application. It's definitely helping to drag my speed up a bit. 73, Phil AF6GA
First time running rufz on a terrible office computer. Awful speaker, can''t hardly copy!!
Just getting started this week. Using the program between code practice to get my speed from 13 wpm to 20-25wpm.
Thank You for very nice software for learning CW
A real nice and fun practice.
Getting back to using this helpful tool !
1st attempt in RUFZXP
Very good program. I need to sit with better posture and maybe use a keyboard that has a better layout than my laptop. I have a hard time with numbers on this keyboard.
Just beginning with RufzXP...
Great program! Determination is what gets the job done. I will succeed.
I am starting again for morse it was a long time ago that i learn '' + ''that.
I got a new computer for my 11th birthday.

Macht aber trotzdem Spaß.....
Vy 73 aus Hamburg
Juhu, endlich die 10000er Hürde geschafft - aber immer noch NIE fehlerfrei alle 50 Rufz aufgenommen. Sollte vielleicht mal einen "Schreibmaschinen-Kurs" belegen, damit ich blind
die richtigen Tasten finde. Mit 2 Fingern wird´s oft eng....aber ich arbeite daran !
SUPER-Programm - fragen Sie aber erst Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker nach eventuellen Nebenwirkungen !
Vy 73 aus Hamburg de Wolfgang, DK5XO
now definitely back home to Sicily, so no more "IT9VDQ/P" but only "IT9VDQ" .... 73 de Gius, IT9VDQ
FINALLY! - A NEW PERSONAL BEST.
Danke für das super Programm.
Da macht üben richtig Spass - trotz allem Frust zwischendurch :-)
Yeah, finaly 50k :-)
Happy New Year!
Es wird Zeit fuer 50k :-)
Merry Xmas and HNY2U
Endlich wieder mal Punkte
Endlich wieder mal Punkte
14240 points, 281 cpm. A little practice every day gets improvement :)
Tnx for all zour fine work Matthias!
I love this game! I can really tell when I skip practice... my score really suffers. When I practice my score rises quickly. This is like eating salted nuts...the better I get the more I am enthused about more practice. Was B.F. Skinner a German? This behavorial experiment has grabbed me big time. Thank you for this program. K6RB and you are my CW heroes.
My first attempt after completing the lessions on lcwo. There's still a lot to be done.
habs noch nicht verlernt, nach gut 2 Jahren ohne RufzXP
109 bpm is not enough for WAG :-(
I really need to learn to touch type, im currently writing the calls down on paper first then typing them into the PC.
I dont think i can write any faster. ;-) Great program i wish that i'd found it years ago.
73s to all.
first CW after 10 years
Heute morgen liefs wieder einmal sehr gut ! Die Fortschritte stellen sich langsam ein, aber es geht vorwärts...
Hoffentlich sehe ich möglichst viele von Euch sich an der HST2012.
Morgens läufts am besten !
Finally!! I think it took two years to improve on my last post. My fault of course, due to not really putting consistent time into it but FINALLY 281 CPM and 13139 :)
Started training today 8.July 2012...let's see how far we go :)
I will call CQ next weekend for All Asia Contest. My contest number will be "5NN8" because I am 8 years old. I am a cub scout. 73!
Punktlandung auf 13000
Fabian, I'm coming close man, you'd better get into serious practice cuz you'll be in trouble soon :-P
thanks to my coach
I'm not there yet but I'm getting there!
Little has also rights!!!!
I am very happy to be working at call sign copy on your web site. This is a very outstading program you have created. I can do this in my own home. Not only a chance to compete against others but to improve my cw skills . It takes much practice and consintration. I applaude those that have achieved such top scores and speeds.
I know I will never get to those high speeds. I will be lucky if I would ever see 50 wpm. Due to age , lack of training , poor hearing. I have fired most likely 1,000,000 shot gun rounds without the use of hearing protection. I have ringing in my ears full time and at times chirping in the left ear. I miss some letters because a dit may not even show up at some tones. But that is not really holding me back from high speeds. I would say lack of training and proper drill work when I first learned code over 35 years ago. I started about a year ago to practice at RufzXP by suggestion of my good friend TF4M . It was one of the best things I have done with cw , that is practice and train at RufzXP.
This has been very rewarding and has without a doubt improved my ability to copy calls for contesting and dxing. I hope to continue to drill and hand in new record breaking scores for WB3CQM record . LOL !
I handed in my first score and continue in part because I am trying to get interest started in this area of Pa to do your RufzXP call sign copy. I really know of no one in the general area and am hoping my indevure will get local hams and new hams interested in cw . I am really trying hard to stimulate some competion and interest in your program.
So maybe this will all fade away in the near future for me . But I would find it hard to beleive any one can match RufzXP.
die Steigerung geht schon sehr langsam........aber das Programm macht mir sehr viel Spaß-Freude
Just two years ago, I made my first Rufz attempt and could barely copy 30wpm. I would have never thought that copying @ 500wpm was even possible back then. If you ever want to succeed at anything, have someone tell you that you will NEVER do it or that you will FAIL; then go to work and dig deep down within to find the willpower to succeed. I look forward to the competition @ HST 2012 in Switzerland this year.
Too many type O's. I need to type faster and better.
weiter üben, üben, üben...
I'VE HIT A PLATEAU AROUND 30 WPM . . .
Inching upward... takes a LOT of work!
.. and is been a pleasure use the software that in my opinion is a big job for all peoples that love CW and absolutely a nice nice exercise of rx also if only for call. ..
Like beating your head against a brick wall, ... but ... it works!!
Erster Versuch, hi.
I started at 400 CPM and calmed my nerves and copied the first call correctly, on the first try! I should have not pressed F6 to confirm it, and I would have gotten even more credit for it. Other than that, my best speed was 325, with a miss by one dit at 335. Still having lots of fun with Rufz after all these years!
FUN RufzXP is!!!
I will have fun with it, LOVE it!!
Noch viel Luft nach oben...hi
i think the breathing exercises are working, plus a bit more practice on the keyboard.
as my score slowly goes up using your amazing rufzXP my consumption of becks beer is going down.
I may have to seek medical advice.hi hi
I like Rufz!
LOL. The highs and lows of this one.
Finally 60 WPM!
Heute lief es per Zufall sehr gut !
Fabian, here I come !!! :-P
Broke 10000 after 3 days of training. Will probably hit a wall soon.
Copying calls has always been the weakest part of my CW skills. This should fix that - in a hurry. The Thanks for this barbaric little Medieval torture program. 200CPM should come soon. 250? Probably a lot less soon!
Have to pratice more if would to good at.
Nice to practice with Rufzxp is very good to begin. Thank you for your software AR
Very Nice Program to learning CW.
My first test.
A new record after many years - set in the southern hemisphere! 73 de ZS1/Gi0RTN
Es geht langsam vorwaerts :-)
getting slower as I get older...
this is very cool application. I've been off the air for years...
Nice way to get myself retrained for high speed morse.
Thank you for this mity fine programe!
Wow, I can't believe I hit 44 WPM - thanks very much to RufzXP! 73
"Type what you hear NOT what you think you heard."
SRI, again: a new speed record :-)
Now the max speed is the best ever I achieved :-)
My first attempt.
Finally achieved with the new "Soundcard" 200cpm finally a pleasurable without "popping
Struggle, struggle, struggle and then a gift; copying at these speeds seems to be getting. It's like a switch flipped on. Just need to be more consistant now.
"The wireless telegraph is not difficult to understand.
The ordinary telegraph is like a very long cat.
You pull the tail in New York, and it meows in Los Angeles.
The wireless is the same, only without the cat."
Startin' to come back to me ;)
Great software RUFZ !
Now the speed is increased a bit... HI!
Steady progress towards Field Day…73
PC speaker and sticky keyboard
Finally I broke my record established 3 years ago
Beginning with some Training with the MorseMachine helps, indeed. And this just before I go to bed. Funny.
Nach langer Zeit mal wieder ein neuer Highscore..
Eine kleine Steigerung nach langer Pause.
Ich übe noch...
Heute lief es ausnahmsweise besonders gut mal sehen, ob ich das wieder hinbekomme :-)) Allen viel Spass beim RufzXP
73 es CWFE de Chris, HB9BJL
ufb Übungsprogramm für CW!!! Macht Spaß beim Tempotraining!
vy73 de Micha, DL5DRM
Enjoyed my first attempt! Hope to improve my score soon. Running on Windows 7 64 bit with no trouble.
Finally some slight improvement!!!
Can see the 70 k from here :-)
ok for the first time
Thanks one more time to my main sponsors: HB9FBM and HB9FBS Happy New Year 2011 to all! Vy 73 de HB9DHG Fulvio
Fun after a while... Laptop computer not really good for this 'training' HI
73 to Ruz!
This is another great day to catch a new record. After playing all the night with HB9FBS Goran
and few suggestion from HB9FBM Fabio (as well myself) I got it!
I love RufzXP.
Vy 73 de HB9DHG
I did it once again ! thank you Fabio HB9FBM and Goran HB9FBS to
always push me on top ;-)
Konnte noch mal eins drauflegen hi..........
Absolutely love this software, it has helped me a lot in learning my cw receiving again. Many thanks to all involved in it's developement.
73 de Allan ZL2SKY.
Second try after a long break. Did do California QSO Party and ARRL CW Sweepstakes in between.
Now I am using RufzXP for the first time and just having a blast . What a fun program and very cool to compete against myself. I am sure this will help me greatly to improve my copy and typing .
Ein prima Programm. Es spornt an besser zu werden. Na, aber es macht Spass damit zu üben.
Looking for 10K
Finally got past the 7500 barrier and the 37 wpm barrier.... hopefully the sky is the limit. What a great program!
hi. Second attempt, doubled the score. I just wish to keep this pace!
Great little app, better than all I've tried before. I'll keep using it. Thanks!
First attempt after over a year of no CW
Thank you. I have very much enjoyed RufzXP, and I was thrilled to finally make it to 40k. I will definitely keep working with the program. Thank you very much for making the Toplist competition run so smoothly. I am certain that I am not alone in having great appreciation for your efforts to make RufzXP such an enjoyable activity.
Thanks to you for the very useful program!!
I beat my own score for third time !!!!
ufb day i've break my score twice and my speed record!!
Also achieved new topspeed today 366 cpm!
73, Chuck NI0C
Finally broke the 25K barrier!
Slow improvement beats none at all :)
Tim O'Conner, AC5SH
I'm probably driving you nuts sending in my low scores.
[DL4MM: Not at all! A semi-automatically system is applied to validate and store the score submissions and to generate the weekly top lists. An incoming score takes just a few seconds to process. So please submit as much you can :-;]
RufzX is really a great soft and I have a lot of fun with it even after 37 years in ham radio.
Nice to be on the list, in the company of the best cw operatorators. Even on one of the last places.
Best 73 and hope to meet you on the air one day
This program appears to work fine on Windows 7 64bit also.
.. Significant improvement. I learned how to use the f6 function and to start at highest comfortable speed.
Not bad for a first try!
It's coming back...slowly...
It's been a while...
I hope I'm not wearing you out posting my score all the time. I'm having alot of fun.
Breaking into the Top 100 of my age group is near.
Always enjoy with rufzxp.
Jean Pierre f6fna
yep, i need practice
hmm..this may be doable
This program makes practice a lot of fun.
(7M) Seven Mexico, I am climbing! Are you coming with me or not?
well i am improving. this program has helped me with numbers more than anything. thanks.
I had just worked a 16 hour day and sat down to do a few RufzXP runs just exhausted. As I sat there, it appears that I was fighting to stay awake. Once the run was over, I looked at the score and couldn't believe what I was looking at. I usually stop after I hit a new high but thought to myself, why not try some more and those were amazing also. I know I was super tired because I went to sleep right afterwards and slept for 10 hours straight.
Love it. I know it is a sorry score, but must start somewhere. This will definetly help me get my skills improved for next cw contest. Then all I will need is an antenna. hihi
Great program- so much fun- thanks!
Slightly better, waiting to crack 10k.
What a great program!
Back in training and looking to crack 10k for 1st time.
new score after 3 weeks practicing every day and new speed record!!
I love RUFZ!
I am so happy to submit a NEW PERSONAL BEST to you today. You know that I continue to work hard and that I will never give up no matter how difficult things may get.
I beat my score again... just by a little but with a higher cpm!
This isn't my high score, but I hit my high Speed! A mile stone for me! 250 CPM / 50 WPM.
I beat my high score again!
Finally some improvement!
Step by step...
I took about a year off from RuFz and am just starting again. I find the program addictive! Great system!
I'm afraid this result will last little longer . . .
Thank you Mathias for such a nice program. It is quite well fitted for self-improving performance.
I am honoured to be on your list.

Thank you Mathias for such a nice program. It is quite well fitted for self-improving performance.
I am honoured to be on your list.
A giant leap from 269k to 297k! "Normal" speed range, but 7 out of 8 slashed calls copied correctly for a lot of extra points.
Still in progress . . .
Just cracked 60 k points!
Again, I started training.
Very urgent training sessions for German Championship. At least a new personal record!
Good things are happening with hard work but I find myself trying too hard. I still have not learned how to relax; but I will in time.
New record in spite of a Windows Update message popping up in the middle of the attempt, asking me to reboot (Rufzus Interruptus)!
been away for a while...it took me a few weeks to get a score higher than my old 18k point score. :-)
Crazy. 3rd day in a row with a new world record (256k, 260k, 268k). I have no idea what is going on, but it appears that I made it past some magical plateau...
Increased my start speed from 686cpm to 724cpm. First attempt: 260k points, new personal record. Wow. One step closer to the magical 300k!
After a "terrible" WPX in SSB, now I enjoy RufzXP! Thank you for this great program.
After a few dozen very good attempts above 240k over the last few weeks, it was about time for a new highscore. Achieving this right after the WPX SSB weekend speaks for itself :-).
Looking at my best attempts, I still see plenty of room for improvement. I am so bold to say that 300k as a long term goal is realistic; it'd require hitting 1000cpm in a regular attempt, some 10% above my current average top speed.
I really enjoy using your program along with LCWO; it really is helping me get better.
I would like to thank for this wonderful and pleasure way to improve my hability in morse code. Best regards,
Cris - PY7GK
I just decoded a 80WPM callsign !
Although I was not in my "high-scoring" mood since I've been practicing for over an hour tonight and my head felt rather heavy, I thought to run a really fast (for me) session only for training (not attempt for high score), to have my head used at those speeds !!
And oh my my !!!! I heard a quite readable buzz and I "felt" that it was W1JJ ! And it was !!! And it was awesome to see that yellow face at the side smiling at me !!!!!!!!!
I just couldn't believe it !!!!! I say "felt" because anything above 70WPM for me is a "feeling". Hard to explain, but at lower speeds, I can clearly distinguish each letter, even if I do lots of mistakes - anything above 70WPM, which at my good days it sounds just very fast, yet feasible, whilst on my bad days it sounds rather like a buzz, not feasible - so if I decode stuff at 70-80WPM range, where most of the times I partially decode almost every call (mostly prefixes), they all sound like a "feeling": everything happens just too fast to analyze it, it comes spontaneous. I don't know whether I am clear, but I can't find any other more successful word than this one to describe the way I perceive it !
So I was lucky, a short american call with looong characters W1JJ was shot off as the very first callsign and I copied it ! :-)
I do decode most of the prefixes at the 70-80WPM range, many times I just miss a couple of letters of the whole callsign, but this time I was lucky !
Gonna have a RUFZ-Fest now ! :-)
Thank you guys for this awesome training tool and sincere thanks to Fabian and Andre for their kind help and patience !
Nice to do Rufz again, it's many years since last try.
I just love this program, its absolutely brilliant.
Hello, I had a little time for training. By the way thank you for your effort regarding the Toplist management...
My writing on the keyboard is better and better!!!
i made a new score because i gave up rufz now i am back!
Finally past 9000 points
I just discovered that one can hear a callsign again by highlighting that call in the sent list and pressing Enter. What a valuable tool! It helps me for the next trial.
[DL4MM]: You may also double-click a callsign to repeat it. So one can easily practise the difficult calls only after a run.
Es ist wie eine Sucht Hi..........
broke my last record by 1500 points !!!
trotz langer CW-Pause macht dieses Programm viel Spaß
congratulazioni per il sito. Infiniti ringraziamenti agli Autori.
Close to breaking my 7000 barrier
Become hard , long weeks without training ! Still a good game
This seems to be a great program to practice with. Am looking forward to improving my score.
After 15 years off comming back slowly :>)
First test with Rufz.
What a great piece of software this is. I am having a ball getting my speed up after no use of CW for some 16 years, LOVE IT!!!
Finally passed 7000 points
A long time to make this last jump and I only do this exercise once a day - just keep going!
Trying to get better.
Stück für Stück wird es mehr... ;-)
Danke für das tolle Programm.
73 de Werner, DL4UA
nice program thanks
Finally broke 8000! This is great practice.
Seems like 40 is not a barrier any more... this is definetely a great program
Moving up, bit by bit. It's getting harder to set new records for myself.
Finally broke the 40WPM mark....
CT3KN's son. 9 years old.
Broke the 6000 point barrier today
Passed 5600 mark. On my way to 6000 points.
Wow. Big improvement..
Finally broke 40 WPM!
YES. I finally reached the 5000 point mark.
RufzXP is a great program. Good way to increase your morse code speed.
Thanks DL4MM for a great piece of software
Yet another personal best today.
First new record in a couple of weeks. It feels good.
HAVENT DONE THIS FOR YEARS. ITS ADDICTIVE.
Thank you RufzXp.
I can copy the code, but only use 2 fingers to type!
First try. Just learning :)
First attempt: YIKES! I have a loooong way to go.
Two bests in one day!
Beat my previous by only 80 points, but every little bit counts!
Just trugge'n along.
Waouh ! Amazing!
Thank you RufzXp ..
Its been a long run since my last best!
Nice one . It's beginning hard! Ever a good game!
I find steady improvements with consistent practice of 10 minutes a day. Thanks for this great tool and 73
Well will see ifI ever get better
It's been years since I've worked out with RUFZ, and it's a pleasure to break my old mark after about a week's practice.
Finally thru the 3000 barrier . YAAAAA!!
New highscore - after a long day at work and a cold beer. Sometimes the "don't care" state of mind is all you need in RufzXP. Just too bad it's not 250k yet!
Mühsam ernährt sich das Eichhörnchen...
First time using this software - great fun! I am getting back into ham radio after about a 12 year absence, and since I only work QRP CW - I need to get my code speed up. I plan on doing this once or twice a day from here on out!
Still need 109 points for 40,000!
Yay- more speed.
only one more point but it really stretches my cpm :)
I'll take it.
Na endlich mal was gescheites über 50.000. Wer weiß, wann ich das wieder schaffe. Ist wahrscheinlich das DA0HQ Fieber.
4 points away from 3000 WOW !!! This program is great.
ok i may have to get something to write with!!!!
Nach 4 Jahren ohne Betrieb.
Thanks for this great program!
Das hätte ich aber garnicht gedacht. Da funkt man ewig bei Tempo 380 herum und 507 geht auch. 73 aus Karlsruhe
Step-by-step... 40k I?am coming :-)
CW rocks !!!
it's beginning hard
121 points from 3000,,,,,, !
Your program is the best !
Nice program. Could you add QRN and QRM? Also it would be nice to have contest info and tally up points as if it were a real contest.
[DL4MM] Thanks! But RufzXP is dedicated to training of high speed telegraphy. For training of QRM skill I recommend using "MorseRunner" by VE3NEA.
Only real men work CW !
some time inactive :((
WOW 119 , just working myself up to the next plateau.
Sorry about the dupe,But I was so excited that I finally got through the 2500 barrier ,I forgot to type in my name ! ........NOW FOR THE 110 BARRIER . Your program is the best..A BIG THANK YOU.
ich lerne es noch ;-)
auch endlich in den Top300, die tägliche Steigerung klappt noch, wie lange?? 73 Wolfgang DF9AO
Ist zwar nicht viel mehr, dafür eine hübsche Zahl -- und erstmals die 300er Grenze geschafft. RUFZ macht mir viel Freude. 73 Gerold
I have not had much free time since I posted my last score at the end of 2007 and this is only attempt number 122. I'm going to try to put more time into it and have a further improved score (hopefully with a higher cpm as well) for you after a much shorter interval next time.
73 and thank you for this great service to Amateur Radio
Tim O'Conner, AC5SH
Over the past several weeks, I've been using RufzXP in an effort to increase my CW code receiving speed. I just wanted to write and thank you both personally for this wonderful program.
I first learned CW by copying the characters to paper. Even though I do well at keyboarding, I needed to learn to hear code and type it into a program. RufzXP had helped me develop this skill better than I could have imagined.
There is no question that I have a long way to go. My goal is to be able to do well at CW contesting. I now feel like I'm well on my way.
Thank you again and 73
Love this program....found out about it at Dayton.
Still addicted to Rufz
Now closed to 14 k . Hope for soon. Nice game
habe dieses Programm entdeckt und finde es ziemlich spannend
Excellent program. Thank you
Having fun getting back into Morse Code with RufzXP... pretty good improvement in a few days!
I haven't operated CW for 5 years... found the windows version of Rufz and gave it a try again... I think I'll work on my score and see if I get a better ranking! Great software!
habe noch ein paar Punkte mehr erreicht...
werde langsam RufzXP süchtig!
my first try...
New topspeed :)
Great training week! Smashed the 25k!
My climb continues. Thanks to K6DBG for putting up a CNN news CW streaming audio site.
Getting closer to 25k.
It has been a good weekend for RufzXP. This is a new high speed and high score for me. Maybe I actually AM improving... Very slowly. Now if I could only hear VK9GMW…
New user of that!
Hope to progress!!
After long time with no socore improvement, finally a little step toward the 50K mark, wich still remain a dream.
Wow my lucky day Friday 13. Two times break my score!
REALLY NEAT ! Great code practice exercise!
Since a long time without RUFZ, I make my training for operating in FO !
I need to work again to be better.
I really appreciate the new version.
FIRST TIME ON DESKTOP COMPUTER
AT 68 PROGRESS IS SLOW
after years without training, it seems that I´m getting better in CW.... But the top scores are really impressive... I wonder how those guys could be so quick... congratulations. 73 de Eger PY2EX
246k - Wow!
Nice to see my progress in just a few sessions! Thanks Again for this great tool.
My typing skills suck!
Love this program!!!
my first try
Great program- Thanks for your help and 73
wollte nur mal testen, ob Tempo 450 auch geht und hat geklappt. HNY
one my way to 20k now !
Finally broke the 10k points ! Thanks for the great software !!!

It's hard to get to 10k ...
FIRST PRACTICE CW
.. on tour with the automobile camper
Work in progress!
Getting back in the game after a year long hiatus, I guess it's true you never forget code!
1st try, will get better, Hi
i have been practicing
I came back today from work so, so, so tired...
Are there better ways to feel better but CWing?
Not many, so let's do it!
I did, and broke my mark after several (fresh being) attempts... and I feel so well...
73 de Carlos, LU1BCE
PS: Would you accept a good intentioned observation to your program?
More southamerican, african, asiatic and oceanic callsigns would improve significantly the fun.
Of all the modes, I enjoy CW the most.
Hurra, habe meine Schallgrenze (40´000) erreicht !
Finally hit 20,000 - yippee!
Even Marconi pays out, hi!
First RUFZ attempt.
I am very glad of setting my personal new RUFZ record
Hatte mein letztes Ergebnis schon mehrfach knapp bertroffen, aber das ist der Hammer... 6000 Punkte ber dem zweitbesten Ergebnis und das mit Top-Speed
Only used RUFZ a few (4-5) time so far. Does take a bit of getting accustomed to is, but I can see that it will become addictive.
Trying to improve my speed.
need more practice, less errors.
need more practice
Mit ein wenig Übung wirds doch wieder besser (hi).
My first attempt. Starting cw practice after a long time.
My first contact with RufzXP
A great score for me as I strive to improve my copy.
Just when I thouight I'd reached my limits!
Finally, more than 20.000! During lunch break, hi.
License since 09-2007
My first attempt at this. learning the program :)
Thanks for RufzXP Mathias and Alessandro - it's great fun!
Questo è il mio primo record. Spero di migliorare ancora !
I want to improve my CW für DXing and Contesting. So thanks a lot for this excellent software. It will help me a lot to hear a little faster... hi..
Back to CW practice :-)
Using RufzXP to get my speed up for HST Championships.
I'm 13 years old. I am using RufzXP to train since I'm on the U.S. HST Team.
I'm Cal, K0DXC, 13 years old. Just tried Rufz for my first time and I must admit it was a lot of fun.
It's been almost 20 years since I was using CW for the last time.
This program is great: real fun and a challenge at the same time :) .
Mein erster Versuch
Radical change of strategy finally paid off.
Nice to testing my CW with this tool for the first time...cu
I mastered 50k points --- and survived!
Getting to 250 CPM was a real struggle!
At last.....at long last.....beat my record!!!
Thanks for developing this fun and productive tool for CW enthusiasts.
In the Army Security Agency I copied manual morse for a living. I'm very impressed at the level of skills by these young amateurs.
Yeeha Erste mal über 1k Punkte
It beggars description :0)
This is getting harder and progress is slower but it is still a lot of fun!
Best Copy Ever
all of a sudden passed 15k :D
I love this software ..
This is my first attempt. I know I need more practice.
This is my first time using RufZXP
Langsam ernährt sich das Eichhörnchen! - SUCHTFAKTOR 10
Getting closer to 30 wpm!
Apparently WPX CW was a good practise for my ears. Even though it is not a QRQ contest :-)
Remember SSB is just a cordless phone.
First time I pass the 90 WPM! Really happy about that, congrats for the program!
My ears are getting clunky as time goes by :-)
Practicing CW just for fun! It was a long time I didn´t practice any CW :-)
I'm getting closer to 30 WPM.
Practice is starting to clear my ears!!!! 73. Martin, LU5DX www.5bits.net/lu5dx
Starting to practice after a long time! 437 CPM :-)
fing so gut an, bis das Telefon klingelte...hi
Sorry for the second hi score in the past few days, I seem to be getting better,hi.
Endlich die 38k...
...wie ich vorhin schon schrieb 38k sind gesperrt...hi
die 38k schaff´ich wohl nie...
vy73 de fritz hb9csa/dl4fdm
Finally got over 500 CPM in XP version.
Ein sehr gutes Praxisprogramm, unsere Aufzeichnung brechen, danke
Whoo this was a bit tough on this first run...will keep trying ..
My first new high score since moving back to Belfast. Even when you feel you are hitting a plateau with RUFZ, it is worth persevering as soon a whole new level of performance becomes achievable. I have now spent 10 happy years playing with RUFZ on and off!!! Thank you for the fun and bringing consistent CW copying speed from 40 wpm to 70!!!
Very good program
I'm back in RUFZ world...
Tomorow will be national 9A competition in RUFZ / MR for HST 2008.
I´m getting better
Finally reached 20k :-)
Note - the radio amateur formerly known as G0RTN - poor score but record speed.
another step towards twenty.. :)
Es macht vy spass!
I´m getting better and better!RufzXP is UFB!
I need smaller fingers for typing so fast
Mit dem ersten Versuch Glück gehabt :-))
Vy73 von Fritz im Urlaub aus Zürich
I am still trying!
Having fun...trying to get a better score
This software is great for contest practice and lots of fun.....73...Phil
Nach langer Pause endlich mal wieder einen Schritt näher an die 6000
I keep moving ahead!
Nach langer RUFZ-Pause macht es Spass jeden Tag ein paar Minuten zu entspannen.
I've never been so close to 10k !!! :)
Es wird immer schwieriger...Meine Grenze liegt momentan um die 30.000.
Speed creeping up... lots of work but I find it very relaxing. A nice escape from the day. :-)
Speed creeping up... lots of work but I find it very relaxing. A nice escape from the day. :-)
Getting ready for HST:)
i will keep practice and hope to be in the top list of top speed group, i`m happy to reach the speed of 80 WPM. looking for new score and speed take care.
hard to get better... :-|
I am creeping up slowly! I really love this program. I am hooked. I
Slowly climbing the ladder ;)

This is great... just go started...

Great program. Used it many years ago and was just reminded about it last week so having some fun brushing up on my CW
Been working at it all night, and all morning!
I am so slow...
This has been fun, but my scores have been all over the place. This is my best so far. I'll keep trying.
Schönen Faschingsausklang !
Back at after a break.
I have forgoten almost all my CW!!!
Didn't realise it was a better score till the end
Es geht auch bei höheren Temperatuen. Grüße aus Bangkok HS0ZII, DL2RMC
SLOWLY getting better.
7k close :)
Very funny software.
I'll be trying it to improve my CW skill.
The last one for today....

My first attempt.
HNY es GL de Helmut
Thanks to HB9FBM and HB9DHG for technical suport
After 20 years off the air, I was afraid I'd lost my cw capability. Apparently it was so ingrained in my brain from years of cw contesting that I was only a little rusty. Thanks for a fun program
Started at 84 wpm. After numerous tries. got 72 wpm.
one day I WILL get the hang of this HI HI
Little by little. Happy New Year, All!
Thank you for creating this super amateur radio software.
Program works great.

Now another record. Where do we go next ?
A good final for this year to break the 10000!
Thanks HB9FBM and HB9FBS for this wonderful RECORD !
Hello from Hawaii, where it’s early evening and 26 degrees C.
I enjoy your RufzXP from time-to-time. My wife is a ham also.
Thanks for what you both have contributed to the hobby and to communications.
Morse is still taught by the US military and cw intercept operations are still utilized.
Try a bit harder GM0Bers !
Try again Doug !
HNY TO ALL!
I must thanks my friends HB9FBS and HB9FBM for taking me in the wonderful world of CW.
Now I'm at 140000 points. Let's see at 15'000 ;-) Wonderful program de HB9DHG
355 never sounded so fast!
BELLISSIMO PRG PER L'ALLENAMENTO MA ANCHE PER TOGLIERE UN PO DI RUGGINE. COMPLIMENTI
I really enjoy using Rufzp. It is the first morse program that uses very realistic conditions, like different pitch and different speeds. My compliments on designing such an excellent program.
...die 30000 wollte ich unbedingt noch dieses Jahr schaffen. Naja - mehr geht wohl nicht ...
Getting closer to 8000 Points (7964) and made a new speed record 38 WPM :) In a few days it will be just one year I started learning the code. I didn´t expect to get there !
lower speed but better score
Still pounding brass :)
I am learning well with this program. As a beginner, I can't believe how fast I am hearing the code now.
6000 points :) Thy again for this program..allways fun ! Fab i'm going to get ya :HI HI
Getting better, little by little...
Must try harder :-)
Oh dear another addictive cw program
Back to ham radio after 51 years. Super Programm und kostenlos. Vielen Dank ihr Zwei!!!

Es macht wirklich Spass mit RufzXP zu üben
After doing well on my first attempt It seems to have taken me ages to beat it,hi. I love this softwre, many thanks - Bill.
Third time today and my best today

Your program is just tooooooo addicting! Lots of fun.
fast täglich eine Steigerung, tolles Programm. Macht weiter so.
Getting even better ..
Still pounding brass :)
3rd attempt and without any previous training - enough for today.
In this regard it seems I'm prepared for the CQ WWDX CW.
cracked 7000 :) on my way to 8k ?
Will I be ready for the CQ WW CW ?
5000 points :) Finnaly :)
73 de Matt, M0PTO
Super programm, werde weiter trainieren, bald ist CQWW
now the 7k target !
getting closer to 6k :)
Jetzt sind die 10k Punkte mein nächster Ziel ... Ich fürchte aber das wird nicht so leicht sein für jemand wie ich der anfang's der Jahres noch kein CW kannte :)
Koch Morse von G4FON und RufzXP haben das geschaft was viele andere in 10 Jahre nicht geschaft haben :)
a hard job to crack the 20000 with 68, but we did it ! Mni thanks for the superb brain-training, that allows Rufzxp. Dave, DL3XO
on my way to 5000 :)
Very 1st try after installation :-)
Finally hit 4000 ! :)
I love it !
best one so far....
Still shaking. Got horribly nervous when I surpassed my old record (187k) with 3 callsigns left, and I copied none of them. My life-long dream of 200k seems within reach.
This is (6219 score and 186 cpm) amounts to my 7th run at it on 22-23 oct 2007 which is the day I first tried. Stand by for improvements... although it may be a while b4 I post again.
very addicting program!
Mit einem Schlag gleich 2 Plätze übersprungen. Sehr geil, ich werde im moment echt zügig deutlich besser. :-) (+50% im letzten Monat...) Lg, Ph
I just discovered your RufzXP program and am having lots of fun with it! It's very addicting. I need the practice now, since I'm essentially QRT. I just got a higher score than the one sent, but will wait for a while before sending it to see if I can top it. My scores will never be very good, but it's fun to get on the board anyhow. I don't know how humans can actually copy 200+ WPM!!
73, Jim W6YA
Not quite 200k yet, but several attempts with >100k at 25 calls. I will keep trying.
Finnaly over 4000! Gl to all! Tu for a realy nice program, that allowed me to finnaly get my CW in a way so i can work on the bands. Bostjan - Ian S55O
es geht in kleinen schritten voran...
New speed record: M0TTT/P @ 1126 CpM!
Nice program, Need more practice HI.
First time using a program :)
Slow but steady progress...
Nach langer Durststrecke gehts wieder vorwärts.
This program is addictive!
Well it's a highest score for me, rubbish by the standards you guys set but it's progress hi hi
Still slowly getting better... this programme is HARD! hi hi
Finally got back to working on my CW copying abilit in preparation for the upcoming contest season.
Thanks for your great program, it's real fun!
Done after working IOTA Contest for two hours...
Das Programm bietet eine hervorragende Trainingsmöglichkeit. Super!
Enjoyed first time, but could not find all the keys, will try harder.
The very first time
Becoming addictive but great practice
Done after working IOTA Contest for two hours...
Progress, progress, progress, but small steps up the ladder. 73 es gud program...
Again a new record: 12440 (222cpm) not good for an old man like me. Hi Gorane (HB9FBS) and Fabio (HB9FBM) I'm coming !!! let's wait few tests and I will be there hi hi.
Take care all and thanks for this nice training program
Tks a lot to offer your excelent software for free!
Just thought that I'd let you know that I've been having fun with RufzXP. I am still absolutely baffled at the scores that appear on the toplist. Looking at my top score (9669) and speed (216) - I am amazed that some of you guys can copy that fast without cheating (like using a PC to decode). You guys are amazing.
Anyway, thought I'd say thanks. Also, I have a blog entry about using statistics to analyze RufzXP: http://www.n0hr.com/hamradio_blog/?p=120
I'm ready to made more and more but it's difficult ;-)
Another day .. another record !!! vy 73 to all
It's hard .. but I need to training again :-) vy 73 to HB9FBS and HB9FBM ..
Hello, again. I am still trying!
At last...improved my top score a bit :)
Another record ;-) I enjoy the program. Thanks HB9FBS
Thanks GORANE !!! you're a good teacher
Thanks to my friend HB9FBS for taking me higher and higher on this test ;-)
Das neue RufzXP macht mir von Tag zu Tag mehr Spaß - das schlägt sich auch in meinen persönlichen Testergebnissen nieder.
Diventa sempre più divertente. Ottimo esercizio.
Ottimo sistema per imparare CW. Raccomando a tutti di provare. Divertimento assicurato.Complimenti ancora.
New record :) yeah
saro' sicuramente l'ultimo ma spero di migliorare
Eureka! Endlich die Schallmauer 100 durchbrochen :-)
Finally over 200 CPM after many tries.
My first day using new program. I love it!
das macht süchtig !! ;-)
I'm on a roll this week!
First try using RUFZ - been lerarning CW for about a year
No more female's scores bigger than mine:)
Newer speed record. One dot off 432!!!
Getting harder each week ;)
Nice software for high speed CW traning! CU in the contest!
I'm realy amazed how RufzXP helps me up to this result!!
My personal target comes near...
Nice test, hope to catch HB9FBM and HB9FBS but they are too faaaaaast ;-)
sorry for one more update today but I couldn't stop my trials to improve my score because the 10.000 points border is by mysel still not reached!
After a training platform finally I made another better score. It shows that training - training is essential. 73's de Manfred (7Z1UG - DK2UG) Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
das war zwar nur eine kleine Verbesserung, aber ich bin wieder ein Platz vorgerückt ..
Das Ziel ist für mich klar: die 10.000er Grenze knacken, also ich komme demnächst wieder!
After 3weeks no new record, Finaly and suddenly a new one hihi.
First try at stn of 7Z1UG
Tried headphones for first time. Immediate >1.2K improvement!

I LOVE yOUR CODE PRACTICE TRAINER VERY MUCH! MUCH PLEASURE,TNX VY mUCH/73!-KE2EB GEORGE AGE 58 YRS,HAM 25 YRS.
Brutal but lots of fun!
Chiacchiera con i tuoi amici in tempo reale!
First attempt with new version
Got a long way to go
One request - option to send the characters at a different speed (faster) than the overall WPM. That is, let the spaces between letters and words be longer than the pauses between the dits and dahs.
Thanks for all your work.
[DL4MM]: This will be implemented in the next update. Stay tuned!
At least now 345 - but not enough points :-((
73's from Riyadh, Manfred
Step by Step - no soo easy !!

I am working RufzXP since august 2006, after 22 years without cw i start again more or less 0.
I find real pleasure with RufzXP and now i can making some QSO on air.
Thank you very very much.
Best 73 and excuse me for my bad English.
Jean Pierre f6fna 59 years old
- little by little - not that easy ;-(
Es macht wieder Spaß
ich danke dir für ein wunderbares Programm! Ich übe seit dem 3.2.
fast täglich (meist mehrmals) mit RufzXP und hab mich toll steigern können. Ich hatte die Hoffnung schon fast aufgegeben doch noch "richtig" CW zu lernen, nun funktioniert es wirklich prima!
Vielen Dank und 73
Vorsicht! RufzXP macht süchtig...
I just want to tell you how much I enjoy your program. I have had it a for a week and already my speed has increased 5-7 wpm.
While not at 80 wpm yet, I can't write fast enough to keep up with the program so now have to drop the pencil.
I can recoginize the usual 2 by 3 calls but the split ones drive me nuts. I would now like a program that gives you randomly used ham words and the
like, so people can learn to send spaces between words at least.
Anyway having fun and appreciate the program a lot.
[DL4MM:] To hear ham words you can create your own callbase just with ham words. (one word or short phrase for each line)
Choose trainer mode, options, set trainer mode to "own callbase" and select own callbase textfile. That’s it.
Tnx, lucky program ! cu es 73
Endlich wieder ein neuer Score :-)
Working my way up. Thanks for a great program!
How are they doing ? Scores upper than 30,000 p.
needed some more time to break my own record again, here we are, pur fun
Thanks for this exeellent program, hpe can qso some time
73 de Pedro XE1YZY
whew this is hard to copy! I guess I am getting rusty.
Not a big improvement over my last record, but every little bit helps.
I seem plateued about 32-34 WPM for contest exchanges and about 18-20 WPM for normal rag chewing. Oh well, I'll keep my nose to the grindstone and have fun!!!
cari amici, mi piacerebbe inviare una mia foto vorrei, per piacere, sapere se posso allegarla ad una mail diretta al vostro indirizzo di posta elettronica. grazie IZ0KON Giovanni
I enjoy doing RUFZ. It's great fun and very humbling to see how many mistakes I make...but, I think I am getting better.
Ringrazio voi tutti per questo sito che mantiene in vita il codice Morse. Per tutta la vita il mio lavoro era quello di trasmettere messaggi dalle navi e se non fosse stato per voi insieme al Morse sarei andato anch'io per sempre in pensione. Spero che capiate l'italiano perchè il mio poco inglese non sarebbe bastato ad esprimere un concetto così elevato.
ciao a tutti voi!
Giovanni IZØKON best 73
Stück für Stück
FINALLY BROKE 10,000!!!
SEEMS MORNING TIME IS BEST FOR THIS. GRATEFUL FOR THE PROGRAM.
First attempt after almost one year..
Score 645, speed 55, well, it's a beginning.
ottimo sito, grazie all'ideatore! Mi auguro, con un po' di addestramento, di migliorare!
complimenti per il sito. Con un po' di allenamento migliorerò il mio record!
Things just keep getting better with this software. Thanks
2nd attempt at RUFZ
10,000 points seems a long way off but when I started using this program about a month ago, my scores were around 1,600 points!
ottimo programma, speriamo di migliorare.73 et 88
complimenti per il sito. Con un po' di allenamento migliorerò il mio record!
This program is a lot of fun!
Great Fun Tnx UK Contest list for the tip off
This is a great program! Just what I needed to bump up my cw speed.
Can't say enough wonderful things about this program - it's fun and addictive, and shows the progress you make if you keep at it.
This is addictive, in less than two weeks I have gone from 5 wpm to 18 wpm!
Sheeesh! I thought I could do better than that! I am going to make this a regular practice since the bands are kinda dead anyway! It's fun!
HI, a much better score to enter the table with ! This is getting addictive....
Yes! Yes! Yes! The old form is starting to come back!
Moving on up.....I hope you guys above are worried, very worried :-)
Enjoying using Rufz to work on my call copy speeds. It's a bit addictive!
using keyboard and speakers. will next try with headset
1st attempt. I need practice!
I hate laptop keyboards I'll Try again using regular keyboard
This program is really helping.
THE WORD 'ADDICTIVE' WAS USED IN THE QST WRITE-UP. IT IS. NEVER DEAL IN C.W. AND HAVE NOT BEEN ON THE AIR IN A COUPLE OF YEARS. CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THE PROGRAM
I love this program!! I am getting better....
Quite enjoying this program and making real progress. Please let me know if I am sending too many records. [DL4MM]: :-) Of course you may send as much scores as you like. Submissions are handled and checked semi-automatically.
This is the first cw program that I enjoy! It is very cleverly programmed. Great job!
This program is addicting...
Finally I returned to my hobby CW and found the RUFZ-program. It's pure fun ... until the next 10-character-call …
Just little bit better.
73 es HNY de Nesa YU7FU
Thanks for the XP version of Rufz and
Happy new Year !
Your software is great fun. Thanks for the hard work you put into it. I will be sending in better scores as time progresses...
I'm a bit on the slow side, but, haven't been a ham very
long and have been slowly working on my CW. It's become my favorite
mode. Rufz makes it fun because it's like playing a video game :).
I'm getting better J
realy fun and i'm improving fron day to day, i'll keep on going
Man, sure more errors than I would have thought possible.
this is the best result of 7 total tests after installed! Very nice enjoy!
73 de Gianni, IS0XDA
LOTS OF FUN..../AM GONNA DO MORE PRACTICE NOW THAT FCC HAS SUSPENDED CW FOR AMERICAN HAMS!!! TERRIFIC PGM....THANKS
First time here, that's realy fun an i'll be back, need some more training
RufzXP Running fine on Windows Vista!
Wow! more difficult typing direct on keyboard versus writing old style with pen and paper :-))
Just downloaded RUFZXp. Never used before. This was my first try. Looking forward to seeing the progress. Excellent tool for improving CW skills!
THANK YOU for RufzXP, which I read about in the latest QST magazine. I have been able to send cw at speeds of up to 10 wpm since 1992, but in a few short days, that has all changed. Now I am up to 18wpm and still improving.
Your program is different than all the other ways of trying to improve morse speed. I'm very grateful. It's fun again!
73 de Alan, WW8ZZ
Great program! I find a certain wakeful state of mind is helpful in increasing both speed and accuracy.
rufzxp is fun...using it 4 days.
Tnx fer great program!
73 de KG9ML
Hello. This is my the first attempt on RUFZ XP.
73 de Nesa
Many, many thanks for RUFZXP. No other learning, practice or contest system has even made morse code fun!
As you know, the U.S. has dropped the need to know morse for ham licenses. Your program will help keep morse alive.
Thank you again for your fine work.
73, Andrew Ellis NO6E
Great fun! Just downloaded and I'll be playing some more
Still a ways to go before I catch up with my old RUFZ high score!
I've been plateaued for a long time now, it feels good to move ahead a bit.
73 de Donald AE6RF
wirklich toll, Danke!
FIRST ATTEMPTS AFTER LONG BREAK
Thanks for a great program!
Contest experience helps a lot.Hi.
QRP only station
hier ein weiterer Versuch.
Beim ersten Mal hab ich in Kontestmanier manchmal ENTER gedrückt und wollte danach das Call fertig schreiben, was leider zu Fehlern führte
This thing can be brutal at times! Hi HI.
After 14 months on CW, 20 wpm is finally starting to sound slow :)
juhu, 1000 BpM
I can't believe I broke 72 WPM! :-) I also cannot believe how my practice
is allowing me to improve still.
A little better.
Wow. I'm rusty! I'm way down on the totem pole for somebody who made his living copying code!r
Trials with new program, I am not a good CW operator
still exercising! great fun
Finally plugged headphones into computer. Much easier to hear the high tones now.
Hope this is working. I love your program!
Erste Email seit der neuen Version. Es wird Zeit wieder zu üben :-)
73s Ingo DH5ST

vy 73 Klaus DF2GN
Not easy to break the 30k points barrier. I change my technique and now wait to listen all the call before typing.
73 Philippe - F6IFY
beim alten Rufz war ich einiges besser ;-) Vielleicht noch ein wenig ungewohnt.Werde wohl ein wenig trainieren müssen,hi....
vy 73 Klaus DF2GN
Congratulation for this very good software. A good training and a great challenge!

First attempt with official version! 28K best score in 7 attempts. Boring compared with Morse Runner.

Tried it using the square wave setting. I think the sinusoid setting sounds much better, but I did much better with it set to square. Hmm....
New score in mean time. 73
Molto interessante.Ultimo test ho fatto 7 mesi fa.
click problem 90% eliminated.. and a good pair of 'phones! ;)
Default settings.. heavy clicks.. audio straight from monitor speaker- no 'phones. More practice..! more practice! ;)
Nice to play again with Rufz! My first attempt!
See you again,

Hello, this is my first score with this wonderful new RufzXP.
Great to see this program again and this time for Windows XP.
Fantastic job - I will be playing again - this was taken on the speaker in a noisy room just to check if it downloaded ok.
I think it did :-)
You can see how will be easy for everybody be better than me in any competittion... Nice to have RUFZ on Windows now…
Just my 1st attempt
